A catch-all functionality that is activated for a given email mailbox will permit you to receive emails that are sent to addresses that do not really exist. Otherwise said, if you deactivate an email address and somebody still sends an email message to it, or to any mistyped address under the exact same domain name, you’ll receive the email in the catch-all mailbox. Using this feature implies that you won’t miss an email for any reason, which could be crucial in case you are running some business, for instance. Since you may start receiving spam emails, you can combine the catch-all option with anti-spam filters in order to get only real emails in your inbox. Only one mailbox per domain name can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be activated for a catch-all mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux website hosting package with our company and you’d like to enable the catch-all functionality for a particular mailbox that you’ve got in the account, it will take literally only one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to do this. A catch-all button is available on the right side of each and every email address that you have set up under any domain name hosted in your account. You can pick one single address per domain name by clicking the corresponding button. This will activate the feature instantaneously, so all email messages sent to misspelled addresses will be received there. Clicking on the button again will deactivate the catch-all feature. In case you’ve got enabled email forwarding, our system will display a warning note and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature until you delete the forwarding or you can simply select some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel that comes with each and every semi-dedicated server package that we offer will allow you to create a catch-all email mailbox without any effort even in case you do not have much email/web hosting experience. All you have to do to achieve that is click the catch-all icon, which will be next to each email address that you have created with your domain names in the Control Panel’s Email Manager section. Since you can have only one mailbox with this feature per domain name, our system will notify you if you’ve already configured another catch-all mailbox or if the one that you wish to use has email forwarding enabled. In case you reach the decision that you don’t need this feature anymore, you can disable it by clicking once again on the very same icon. The Email Manager will also permit you to see your catch-all mailboxes at a glance.
